Bel Canto Design E1X Integrated Amplifier

Bel Canto E1X Integrated Amplifier

The E1X Integrated amplifier marks entry into our Advanced Integrated Platform that combines our high-resolution DAC, streamer, and phono stage designed with a powerful 200W Stereo amplifier in a single chassis. The E1X Integrated delivers unprecedented bass detail and natural timbre at all power levels that brings your speakers to life. E1X is designed for music lovers who want an uncomplicated, uncompromised, and exhilarating home audio experience that emphasizes realistic and compelling musical.

The E1X Advanced Integrated Platform (AIP) pulls design elements from the award-winning Black System that optimizes both analog and digital system performance. Each input travels an expertly placed circuit path that provides noise rejection and signal optimization along with advanced custom time optimized filters that reduce sonic blur and increase clarity and dynamic impact.

The E1X Integrated joins elements of our uncompromising technology in the E1X DAC with years of experience in power amplification to create a compact high-powered integrated component. The E1X Integrated is without compromise taking full advantage of proprietary circuit design that includes the very advanced HDR-II (High Dynamic Range) DAC core and the AMiP (Asynchronous Multi Input Platform). Bel Canto technology and experience combines to provide uncompromised sound from any source, whether you’re streaming music through Ethernet or USB, using the full suite of digital inputs for spinning a CD, the line level inputs for a reel-to-reel tape deck or listening to vinyl via the internal MM/MC software controlled analog phono stage, you’ll experience the full potential from all source components.
